Week 2.1 Love, Companionship, and Inspiration
Since the 23 of February 2010, a beautiful, talented, and very intelligent young woman, by the name of Diva, has entered my life. She has been a huge inspiration to me, even in the short amount of time I have known her. Ever since our first encounter, I knew that there was something very special about her that would bond us together to work as a team. She is on the path to becoming a professional writer and I am on the path to becoming a professional Graphic Designer. Every time I talk to her my imagination flows like a waterfall of brilliant ideas, new forms of art, and a world that manifests from from these new ideas. I have never been to sure on what it is about her that does this to me. Is it in her personality, her motivational demeanor, or is it simply that I am falling in love with her? What I do know is, that when I am around her I know there is nothing I cannot do. She is my inspiration to prevail, my will to succeed, and the determination to be the best I can be. So in dedication to her and the inspiration she has given me, I have created an illustration of her with the use of my own personal photography and my Photoshop and Illustrator skills, using the knowledge that I have gained from learning Graphic Design and the recent inspiration that I have developed from the newly developed companionship I have with her. After eight long hours of hard, but well worth it, work I have finished the illustration and added a few final tweaks to it and finally called it a day. This piece of art is in dedication to my beautiful new companion, Diva Jefferson.
